Braves Are 13th Most Valuable Franchise In Baseball

Woo-hoo, we're number 13! We're number 13!

Lucky 13?

The online financial ranking magazine Forbes (that's all they do, right) has released their rankings of the most valuable franchises in Major League Baseball ... and the Atlanta Braves are ranked number 13. The Braves are just below the Twins, and just above the Astros.

The most interesting number I found in the Forbes table is that the Braves are one of only two baseball teams with zero debt; the other team being the 27th-ranked Blue Jays.

Forbes values the Braves revenue at $201 million U.S. dollars, and says the team has an operating revenue of $22.2 million (I think that's profit). The Braves rank as the team with the 14th-highest revenue, and 13th-highest operating revenue ... so we're right at about 13/14 all around.
